Rodgers not worried by inconsistent Liverpool

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is not overly concerned by the inconsistency Liverpool have shown so far this season, Sky Sports is reporting.

The Reds have been unable to match their start or form of last season which saw them finish eventual runners up in the race for the title.

They claimed ten points from their opening four games, while this season has seen just six collected and includes a home upset and the hands of Aston Villa.

Half of their league goals also came in the 3-0 victory at Tottenham but Rodgers is not concerned by their inconsistent start.

He said: “There’s no magic formula, it’s just constant work on the training field.

“I remember this time last year, we were sat in press conferences and the questions I was getting asked were about whether we were going to be able to score goals. We ended up with 101 goals.

“It’s just time and patience with players. The way we were playing in March, April and May last season we weren’t playing that way last September. It’ll be the same this year.

“I’ve always said by the time the second part of the season comes, we’ll always be stronger and better.”

Liverpool struggled to overcome Bulgarian Champions Ludogorets midweek, with a late Steven Gerrard penalty sparing their blushes, but Rodgers insisted that while they had not been at their best he was happy with the return from his players.

The Anfield outfit currently sit eight in the early Premier League table and face 14th placed West Ham on Monday night, before they face crunch tests against fierce rivals Everton and FC Basel.
